Went to the public library tonight, Phil Edmonston was talking about his new youth oriented book "Car Smarts", but I got a chance to talk to him after his hour long presentation.
Me: I have an '02 Intrepid R/T
Phil: Does it have the 2.7?
Me: ummmm no? The 2.7's have oil sludge problems.
Phil: Good, oh you know your stuff
Me: Anyways my chrome rims are rusting on my car and it's not even 2.5 years old yet. I went to the dealer today and they looked at them and said they'd call Chrysler but they also pointed out to me that chrome isn't covered under the warranty.
Phil: You've got a slam dunk.
Me: How so? The dealer doesn't seem willing to do anything.
Phil: Stop talking to the dealer, once is enough. Send a letter to Chrysler threatening to take them to small claims court and sue them.
Me: Then what?
Phil: Wait about 3 weeks and they might be willing to listen.......and if they're not you should file in small claims court.
Me: Would I win the case?
Phil: You have a slam dunk. Watch out for that tranny.
Me: Pretty sure the tranny only eats sensors and I won't need a new one.
Phil: Wow, you know your stuff, good job.
PRETTY much sums up our conversation
